Maxton Manufacturing Company Holds Certified Elevator Technician Training at ThyssenKrupp

 Minden, NV- On August 16, 2013 Maxton held two hydraulic elevator control valve classes with 12 elevator technicians attending from ThyssenKrupp Portland, OR.  These classes provided the technicians with continuing education credits (4.0 credit hours) through the NAEC’s approved Certified Elevator Technician program. These sessions were made up of classroom instruction and practical application through valve adjustment and troubleshooting with the Maxton TA4M training unit.


I was very impressed with the quality of the training class.  Maxton Manufacturing has put together a top-notch training program for their product, covering basic theory and advanced troubleshooting.  Having a live simulator in the classroom, cutaways of the valves and animated simulations made visualization of the valve operation very clear.  Many of our technicians have commented on how helpful and valuable the class was” said Gary Miller Service Manager.

“The ThyssenKrupp group in Portland were sharp and a pleasure.  We look forward to returning in the near future for the second group of 12 elevator technicians,” said Karl Keller Marketing Director.
